Toledo burn victim shot himself, ruling says

The man whose burned body was found Friday outside a Telegraph Road mobile home died of a gunshot wound in the head, Dr. Cynthia Beisser, Lucas County deputy coroner, said last night. She ruled the death a suicide.

Positive identification was not made, but records show Wesley Hall, 49, lived at that location in the Carriage Way Mobile Home Park for at least seven years.

A rifle was found next to the body. Police believe the man set his mobile home on fire before he shot himself.
